Peyton Farley has settled into a new life in southwest Montana. Research and fact checking for a local newspaper is a perfectly safe job, or is it?

Vitamin D and a good workout can help keep the undescribable moment of despair away or at least down to a manageable few minutes a day.
Adam Lambert and Kate Gosselin have the same hairstyle. When the temperature drops below zero the dog does her business toot-sweet. Our Ecclectus Parrot only needs to see the orange handled nail clippers coming out of the drawer and she scrambles beak over feet to her big iron bird cage.
A person who has been busted for a crime, a person on parole or probation who is not supposed to be hanging out with other people of questionable reputation is certainly not going to make a report that his buddy and fellow prankster has gone missing. A woman who has gone missing herself, perhaps hiding from an abusive life partner is not going to want to provide personal information about herself in order to report an abduction she witnessed. There are many reasons for failing to report a crime, a body, or a missing person.
Having touched on these issues, is there anything anyone can do to curb these numbers? In my research of these problems I have not saved or identified a single victim, nor have I lessened anyone’s risk of becoming one of these missing people. I feel fairly powerless.
